What you lot fail to realize is that iOS doesn't share the specs with any other OS like Android shares with Unix running behind it. I'd buy an iPhone 5S with 128gb for 1000 bucks any day instead of a low quality plastic 800 bucks 16gb Samsung S5.
Honestly? I was hoping the benchmarks would do better but only to shut up Samsung sheeps but an iOS device will always be better than an android one. 4 years from now iPhone 6 will still be rocking anything you throw at it while any today's android flagship will be little more than junk.
Keep hating. It doesn't change a thing.
Hey my one year older android is faster lol. I thought iPhone was very efficient. Hahaha poor sheeps must be saying our 2k scores means 5k in android. That's what losers say.
Just imagine if apple would use on their phones the resolutions used on high end droids, imagine how horible they would perform. Iphones are bad and the only reason they are not lagging is because they have low res, closed os, and little features close to non, no animations, no nothing, not to mention no compatibility with other devices which aren't apple branded and why pay 2 dollars for a charging cable on a droid or windows phone which works for all models when you can pay 20-30 dollars for one. Why have sd slot when you can pay 100$ extra for 16 gb when a sd card with 32 gb is 25$. The most respactable way to put it people that buy apple products are naive for trusting in those thiefs and for paying more for something that imposes restrictions on you even though no other company does this. Iphone 6 hardware = 2010-2011 droids. Pathetic.
My Galaxy Note 3 multicore test is higher than the 6 plus, so for the Note 4 benchmarks are higher than the 6 plus too...
Have you seen the memory speed? Around 7 GB/s.
Compare that with a class 10 microSD card (10MB/s) and you realise one reason why Android phones lag.
I'll be curious to see S5 and Note 4 memory speeds to compare. And remember, if the A8 processor from Apple would run at the same speec as the S5 and Note 4 processors 2.7 GHz, the performance gap would be really ridiculous. A8 has only 2 cores running at 1.3 GHz. So Android needs double the number of cores and double the frequency to get similar results. Pathetic!
popye, 19 Sep 2014I've had many devices from different brands in the past but Apple devices are the best I've ev... moreWhat never gets mention is price in the UK
iPhone 6 £539/619/699
When you visit the orchard as they can't justify in terms that can be measured we have.
"The strength of Apple devices lies from the elegance of the hardware to the beauty and simplicity of the software to the smooth performance and excellent user experience."
You really should not mention simplicity in any phrase, however as soon as a test for user experience comes around I'll be sure to miss it
NFC used ONLY for Apple Pay. (NO FILE SHARE AGAIN even between iPhones)
No Sapphire, No Gorilla glass replaced by SHATter proof Glass (drop test oops!)
Too much change too soon
SO NO CHANGE still 8MP and still 1GB RAM
Did you know the iPhone 6+ is the ONLY 5.5" 16Gb phone on the planet with only 1Gb ram so APPLE IS FIRST!
100 MHz clock speed increase wow,(the first in 3 years and possible the smallest ever by anyone)
The iPhone5 with a larger display as the second iPhone after the iPhone5,NOT iPhone6 iPhone5S mark 2
iPhone5S single core 1380, multi core 2530
So iPhone6 single core 1627, multi core 2920 whilst an improvement are just that
The S5 http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/779978
FYI the benchmarks alone do NOT cancel out other features of say the S5, FUNCTIONING BLUETOOTH & NFC
WATER DUST PROOF etc.
The iPhone may score high in one area but having a page load a few milliseconds is NOT what the high price was paid for was it?
You comment is that you have an iPhone5S so after 2 year contract, you can get the iPhone 6, this is what you upgrade from and to. TWO years have brought you this
"One possible explanation is that the Geekbench suite itself isn't yet optimized for the Apple A8 architecture and has slight variations in its results. Just yesterday another popular benchmark suite Benchmark pulled off any test results done on the Apple A8 chip until it sorts known bugs with its software."
I disagree same CPU over a larger display area
#12 Anything worth selling is worth selling twice
this is the phone you are taking forward into 2016
Welcome to 2012 here is a tip BET ON USAIN BOLT!
Joey, 19 Sep 2014Androids also suffer massive audio lag compared to Iphones, 1 more reason the why Iphones are ... moreAudio lag? Never experienced that. I use poweramp as the Google music is just a joke. The sound is terrible with that app too but poweramp is just awesome.
John Harrison, 19 Sep 2014The best and fastest phone on the market when released. It trumps the Note 4 with this plastic.read the performance sheets again or go check ur "isight" buddy. note 4 swallows both the iphone 6 and its brother iphone 6 plus and still has room left for the iphone 5s. this is trully a let down from apple. ifans must be completely gutted by this news. yeah its seriously BAD news for the haters and bashers of the droids. There's nothing to hold on to, all the data is here for all to see.
Tannett, 19 Sep 2014" So it seems new apple chip can easily beat Snapdragon 800 & 8001 easily" No... moreFinally. the moment came which silences the whole "iphone 6 +" better performance than any android. "iphone" kills the droids. there are real time performance test results. cant even compete with a minimal speced droid handset. the design feels so rushed to play catch up and premature release of a very unimpressive iphone 6 + its even slower than that short changed midget of thier substandard iphone. I trully wonder were some people's common sense went. this thing based on the given specs will be out of breath if one attempts to play 4k content on it. no wonder they didn't even attemp nor whisper anything 4k on this things. I always knew that something will come up to solve this unpleasant debates and constant android bashing sesions. cant even take on a last gen HTC, the iphones are like ants swearing at an elephant that can stomp then to pulp and not even notice. so yeah iphone is just road kill for the droids now. pls keep playing catch up en bragging about it, ok dont stop now I know u like bashing at sammy phones now come on where is ur epic performance now huh.
Probably because the 6 Plus is pushing 1 million more pixels than the 6 with the same CPU and GPU.
htcownerguy, 19 Sep 2014here come the "SPEC-WHORES" !!! that their droid has higher number in this and that ... moreLag? My HTC M8 doesn't lag maybe others i can't say but my M8 is butter smooth thank you so to me your comment is ill informed as far as i am concerned.
The tests it is beating them in is mostly encryption where the 64Bit OS/Processor can help with.
I love the fact that these apple lovers all say how much better the iPhone is compared to every phone on the market yet apple is the only company which offers a 12 month warranty with their products when every other manufacturer offers 24 months as standard that should say a lot about hot crapple they really are lol try and come up with an excuse apple lovers I dare u lol lol lol hahaha
Anonymous, 19 Sep 2014Awesome! You just compared to another phone which is released almost a year ago!hahahaha, u r right man .. all tests say the difference is not that much
Do people realise multicore is what matters over single core... Your phone doesnt use just 1 core lol.
Unbeievable that apple release a phone 6 months later than the likes of Sony, Samsung and HTC and STILL achieve a lower multi core benchmark. Yet the mindless fanboys stll flock for a phone twice the price, with less features and power. Its just utterly barbaric, but hey, each to their own.
If you want to go out and spend more money on a less powerful device with little features and an NFC that only works with Apple scanners, in the USa, then go for it. However if you want a more powerful fone, with no restrictions, hen just go Android.
Apple never fail to amaze me. They utterly rob consumers.
Joey, 19 Sep 2014Androids also suffer massive audio lag compared to Iphones, 1 more reason the why Iphones are ... moreAre you kidding what lag do you speak of coz I've never seen any. HTC, Sony and Samsung are all great for music playback and gaming sound, look at the reviews for that handsets and you'll see
egasso, 19 Sep 2014Well ,when you compare geekbench android scores ar iphone 6, scores sounds pretty darn good. T... moreThe g3 is running qhd display, the k1 stomps all over it, my z2 score's 2732, multicore is the true test here, apples single core times 2, sd801 times 4, and by the looks of it resolution does effect the score if the g3 scores that. So if that is the case then sd801 beats a8 then you have the sd805 and the 810 which will make the gap even bigger. Apples getting left behind
